Just a gentle reminder that I took some pains at the last OOPSLA to try to remind everyone that Smalltalk is not only NOT its syntax or the class library, it is not even about classes. I'm sorry that I long ago coined the term "objects" for this topic because it gets many people to focus on the lesser idea.
The big idea is "messaging" -- that is what the kernal of Smalltalk/Squeak is all about (and it's source: something that was never quite completed in our Xerox PARC phase).
